Oral Molecular Pathophysiology

Cordeliers ‘s research Center, Paris.

Oral diseases are a major health concern. They include frequent infectious diseases, common acquired dental developmental defects, rare genetic diseases and tumors.  Our team explores oral physiology and pathology from bench to bedside. Our goal is to identify and characterize distinct molecular pathways driving jaw-tooth biology
